My teenage children and I went to Melbourne for a weeks holiday, the reception staff were welcoming and pleasant. The 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in was clean, well set out. It was a little dated, but that did not deter from anything. Tram stops were directly out the door of the building and it is within the free tram...

Location is good as it is easily accessible to different parts of melbourne. Tram station is just outside the apartment. Condition of the apartment itself was alright, a little worn out but nothing too bad. Had to pay for parking (AUD20) and that is if they have available slots, if not have to find street parking which costs more. Nothing...

I stayed with my two grand daughters last night. I booked a one bedroom unit and was upgraded to a two bedroom for no extra charge. Very well set up, nice kitchen and facilities. Large Queen in the main bedroom and twin beds in the second bedroom. Found everything working and in good order, very clean with air conditioning and...

Harbour view apartments are great. My room had an unchallenged view of Docklands harbour. Service was as great as the views and would stay again. The rooms were clean and undamaged despite other reviews saying so. Rooms are also not outdated.

A nice enough place all the same. Not too far to walk to from the SkyBus terminal. That was what I was after, so I got that much! Not the cleanest of places, but nice rooms. Enjoyed my stay, but not so much that I'd stay there again unless I got a good deal. But hey, I'm stingy.

Let's start with the positive. It is also very convenient for the Etihad Stadium and that was great because we were there for a concert. However, I booked through hotels.com. I was quoted $450 for three nights. On check in I was told that the price was now $650 because of the Adele concerts. As the concert had over 150,000...

The worst accomodation I've had travelling on business ever. Room had lots of damage to walls and bench tops. The street noise is atrocious and led to zero sleep, which was very bad given I was there for work. The airconditioning was even noisier than the teams outside. This was supposed to be "4 star" but even where they could...

Don't believe the hype; these 'apartments' are actually hotel rooms with a room divider built in to nearly create a lounge area. Well out of the city attractions, except for Etihad Stadium. Next time I will be staying closer to the action.

It was clean. I booked a team of 3 people at this location in a 3 bed apartment. Looks like they converted a dining room into a 3rd room. Central air con doesn't work, so split system did only part of the apartment. Patches all over the walls, maybe they should invest a few dollars in actually painting the unit....

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
